My Life After I Introduced My Girlfriend To My Mother – part 5
While at the park, the bus already filled, but suddenly, the driver became sick and said, he won’t be fit to drive.
So he left, to treat himself.
And we trans loaded to the next bus.
As we were about to leave, the second bus developed fault.
It refused to move.
And one of the passengers made a statement that got me uncomfortable. I even got scared that Dera might pick what she said and relate it to the message her sister told her about us, not been compatible.
But she was calm and didn’t have her mind thinking anything extraordinary.
The woman said, “looks like something is preventing us from embarking on this journey. This is no longer normal”
Dera didn’t pay any attention to what was happening. She saw it as normal stuff that can come up in the course of journey.
The driver said it was a minor issue that can be fixed, that we should exercise some patience.
We had no option than to wait for him
But 30 minutes later, we were still waiting.
So we complained and the management made arrangement for another bus.
So, after the delay, we finally left the city to my village.
While we were still on the way, Dera fell asleep and I rested her head on my shoulder, while I held her hand, but my heart wasn’t at peace.
I was having this strong feeling that, something may go wrong.
My heart already experienced enough heart break, so getting disappointed by Chidera would definitely destroy me, because she was different from all the women I’ve dated.
And I was so scared.
And finally, we reached my town.
Through out the journey, I was paying a constant check on her face, to see if she would experience any kind of difficulty or get uncomfortable, but she was ok and looking excited.
When I wanted to stop a bike, she asked, “is your house far from here?”
“No, not far…”
“Then, why stopping bike?”
“Because I don’t want to stress you.”
“No…I’m fine. You are not stressing me. This is village, I’m enjoying the atmosphere already, so let’s walk”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, I’m not on heels”
She was right.
The distance from the junction to my house isn’t that far, just that, I don’t want her to experience any stress.
And we got trekking, chatting, laughing as I share my childhood experience, my village life.
She told me that, the sweetest part of the journey was the trekking part. That she enjoy walking with me.
I kept looking at her, appreciating God for blessing me with such a kind beauty.
Dera made a request before we took off for the journey.
She told me to remind her, that once we reach close to my house, that I should let her know.
She was very emphatic about the request, that once we are getting close to my house, that I should let her know, and that I shouldn’t forget.
And I said Ok….that I will definitely do that, not caring to ask her the reason for it…..do not stop reading..
